Lekagar, the Black River
The Lekagar, which literally means Black River (Lek - Black, Agar - River) is a large river that runs through the eastern portion of the Kenerif Continent. It has its sources in the mountains of the Ancestor Desert and empties into the The Sunken Lands at the Void Lagoon. Throughout most of history, the river was a major border between two major powers until they merged into the single nation that makes up modern day Vefaria.
The Lekagar is host to numerous plant and animal species, many of which are endemic to the river system. The river system runs through several different biomes from high mountains and grasslands, to low lying swamps and forests, to coastal marshlands. The black color of the water is due to the high concentrations of tannic acid from the plants growing near the river, giving the water a permanently darkened appearance through nearly its entire length. This water empties into the Void Lagoon, which also gets its name from the blackened waters.
